Main difference is package management system Ubuntu is based on Debian and uses apt, while CentOS is based on RedHat and uses rpm.

CentOS is a free version of RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) with all the RedHat copyright material and programs removed. This makes it over 99% binary compatible with software compiled for RHEL. RHEL and CentOS are rock stable versions of linux used by many business and academic organizations throughout the world.
Ubuntu is a Debian based linux distribution which is quite different than Redhat based distros.
